Between the Sheets #84: February 22-28, 2001 w/ Phil Schneider

Kris & David are joined by Phil Schneider (Segunda Caida) this week to discuss the week that was February 22-28, 2001. We talk about the ongoing problems with WCW’s potential sale to Fusient along with everything else going on with the dying promotion. We also talk about everything Japan, the birth of Mat Rats, the scene in Mexico & Puerto Rico before Phil joins us to talk about the burgeoning US Indies scene including the Super 8 tournament, which made American Dragon & Low-Ki stars. We then close with a huge WWF section featuring the firing of Stacy Carter and the quitting of Jerry Lawler. This is a absolutely loaded show and a must listen!!!
